As with most error detecting tools you are bound to run into problems that result in a cycle of error correction. This is really apparent with the Close Holes and Fix Distorted Faces tools.

SuSolid tends to try too hard at times to resolve geometry that is perfectly fine and is already reporting as solid. With the Distorted Faces tool seemingly fixing one problem but introducing another series of errors that when fixed result in another distorted face issue. I tended to stay away from this tool as it did not affect the end result which was to make a non-solid solid. In the image to your left I have analyzed a selection of groups to determine what is not a solid and to overview the errors it is returning. As you can see there is one particular area that has a number of errors from Single Edges to Holes. To target just this item you select it and run Analyze again to perform the fixes needed. On the opposite page you can see the BLUE errors (coplanar edges) took 2 clicks to remove. Fixing the YELLOW error (inside edges) resulted in the RED error (single edges) and fixing this returned a solid. www.sketchUcation.com
